Sierra Ferris And Jacoby Hereford: Using Their Education For The Reservation

Jul 29, 2019

Two Native American Students from the Wind River Reservation are sharing their journey to continue their education at Central Wyoming College in Riverton, Wyoming. They are both members of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe. They speak of their desire and passion to help others achieve their dreams and goals on the reservation. They also discuss breaking down the barriers and stereotypes that Native American people experience. 

“I feel like there's a lot of Indian kids that need that someone to talk. I think that I could be one of those people that they're just comfortable because I'm a Native American myself  and we’ve been through the same thing.” Sierra Ferris
